Elixance is involved in a new European collaborative project around PHA: NENU2PHAR


The NENU2PHAR project aims to create a new European value chain for the production of PHA-based bioplastics from sustainable resources with a controlled end-of-life. NENU2PHAR is funded by the European Commission and the European Joint Undertaking Bio Based Industry (BBI-JU).

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are biopolymers derived from a biological fermentation process and are widely recognized as an alternative to fossil fuel-based plastics. They are renewable, biodegradable and of biological origin, all characteristics that make them the polymers of the future.

Six specific objectives :
• Develop competitive PHAs polymers bio-sourced, sustainable both from an environmental and economic perspective
• Formulate and functionalise polymer for masterbatch and compounding development
• Identify processes of PHA-material to reach defined functional properties of bioplastic better than fossil-fuel counterparts
• Develop eco-designed PHA-biobased products
• Demonstrate the circular economy and sustainability of the NENU2PHAR value chain
• Increase stakeholders and consumer awareness of new bio-plastic product for better acceptance and compliance to marke
